The purpose of the strategic planning process is to focus institutional efforts on the
“means” to achieve CWC Board of Trustees “ends” through a process of determining

national imperatives to ensure both student access and success, now more generally referred to as the national “completion” agenda. The 12-13 strategic priorities clearly advance this statewide and national agenda.
